This month has been spent doing lots of paperwork and planning for an addition on the barn that will serve as a press room and fermentory for the hard cider, with space for the farm stand. So, if you visit us this fall we should have a new (and hopefully permanent) retail space. The addition will allow us to make more hard cider as our young apple trees mature and produce fruit, since our current fermenting space is pretty jammed right now. We received an APR Agricultural Improvement grant which will help us expand, and we are checking out other resources the state has to offer. This should give us the space we need once all our trees are producing, so hopefully this will be the last big building project.
